The new Chronograph movement - calibre 37 - by Glashütte Original
Glashütte Original reveals the fascinating art of fine mechanical watchmaking with a new chronograph movement designed and hand-crafted entirely in its own manufactory in the German town of Glashütte. The new Calibre 37 column wheel chronograph debuts at the heart of two new models: the classic Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the vintage looking Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date.
The manufactory’s design team has successfully integrated a unique combination of functions including: central stop seconds hands, 30 minute and 12 hour counters displays with flyback mechanism; small seconds counter with power reserve indicator (70 hours), and its iconic Panorama Date.
The Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is available in two versions – platinum and red gold – both displaying the signature symmetrical harmony of Glashütte Original’s classic yet contemporary Senator line.
The platinum model features a lustrous silver dial with laser-engraved black tachometric scale, railroad chapter ring and Roman numerals. The dial’ superb colour and texture is accomplished by a traditional handmade technique known as “silver plating by friction”. The gold model features a lacquered silver grained dial with black railroad chapter ring and black Roman numerals. It is encased in a satin brushed, hand polished 18 carat red gold case.
The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date’s striking case in stainless steel lends it a sporty air. This robust and stylish timepiece is available in three dial versions: galvanised blue, ruthenium and silver. All three are artfully decorated with a sun-burst finishing. The indexes are fashioned in white gold, as are the hour and minute hands, which are inlaid with Super-LumiNova to ensure legibility in the dark. All three models are available on a Louisiana Alligator leather strap, a rubber strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
